Go Back Report # 153


As we have seen, however, what appeared to be submersible craft or constructions coming up from below ocean surfaces had nonetheless been reported throughout the ages.

The same have been reported from what I call the shallows, but it was not until the end of the 1950s that this bit burst upon us--and burst it did. This succession was kicked off by a report of an incident off Bodega Bay, California, on the 13th of March 1958, which stated simply that "an undersea 'object' which refused to identify itself was spotted by Navy pilots 50 miles northwest of San Francisco. Nearby naval air and sea craft, including 11 destroyers from San Diego [mark you] were rushed to the area, but nothing was found. Among unsatisfactory reports this takes a pretty high place. Destroyers dashing five hundred miles just to look into such an incident would appear to be a rather exaggerated procedure, but then again, the details of the report may well have been garbled.
